The Big Lebowski

The Dude abides in a beautiful 4K restoration of The Big Lebowski!

When Jeffrey “the Dude” Lebowski is mistaken for a similarly-named millionaire, two thugs question him about a debt he knows nothing about, urinating on his rug in the process. While attempting to gain compensation for the ruined rug from his wealthy counterpart, the Dude accepts a one-time job with high pay-off. Deception leads to more trouble, and it soon seems that everyone from porn empire tycoons to German nihilists want something from The Dude.

A cult classic that endures to this day, The Big Lebowski has been cited as one of the best cult films of all time by Rolling Stone.


“‘The Big Lebowski’ is easy to love and rewarding to obsess over, but for me, it’s more than just a fun movie to quote; it’s a comforting memory generator, and when I watch it, if I squint, I can kind of see my dad again.” – Asia Frey, Lagniappe

“If one were to examine the entire cinematic resume of the Coen Brothers, The Big Lebowski would assuredly rest within the top five spots.” – Danielle Solzman, Solzy at the Movies

“I’ll just say this: The Big Lebowksi is an excellent movie – and damn funny.” – Joe Holleman, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
